I have a Audigy creative sound blaster
PClinuxOS recognises it as shown and defaults to the details shown below.
Here you can select an alternative driver (either OSS or ALSA) for your sound card (Creative Labs|CA0106 Soundblaster).
Your card currently use the ALSA "snd_ca0106" driver (default driver for your card is "snd_ca0106")
I have had sound before for DVD using SMplayer, but not at the moment
I do not have sound for the start up and close of the PC either.
A couple of times when setting up I have found a test function to check whether it worked but cannot find it at the moment.
When I do set it write for the DVD to work it forgets setting next time I boot up again.
any help would be appreciated.
